Social Good Summit (Part 2): Rajesh Mirchandani

In Part 2 of our Social Good Summit special, we're sharing the journey of Rajesh Mirchandani, Chief Communications Officer for the United Nations Foundation, a partner of the Social Good Summit. Rajesh was born in India, but his family moved to the UK when he was just three years old. Rajesh eventually worked as a journalist for the BBC, where he covered a variety of stories and issues. These include the Haiti Earthquake and typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, one of the most powerful tropical cyclones ever recorded in history. After 20 years of global journalism experience, Rajesh left journalism to become an advocate. He now leads a team of skilled communicators working to advance progress on important global issues.

In this episode, we'll hear from Rajesh on why the Social Good Summit chose the climate crisis as its sole theme for this year's event, and how climate change affects other issues we’re facing in the world right now. He says that we hold the power as consumers to make a difference.

On Sunday (September 22nd), global leaders, celebrities and activists will gather at the Summit to leave you and I inspired to take action, and help save our planet for generations to come.
